Stone does it again. Thick white head n lacing for days. Taste is fresh lemon and apricot followed by grapefruit that gives way piney honey orange nectar. Last sip, i only bought one. ***side note*** at the same craft beer store i purchased this can there was the stone "drink by series" which date is over 2 months ago and they still wanted $4 for it. So i didnt try wut would have been a great fresh hopped unfilted limited release. But according to the plain language on the can, it was not meant to last past that date. Now i wish i would have took the gamble.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Fantastic IPA. A rare combination of malt and fruit. Hop forward, gets sweeter, with a pineapple aftertaste.

Sampled at Tucson fest. This is bitter and complicated. Hop forward but a nice malt base. Melons, tropical fruit, earth, much more. A nice ipa. Long after taste.

Bitter juicy hoppy IPA. More piney resinous with a orange rind bitterness. Good IPA, but on the bitter side.

jsporrer (1085) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange with a big foamy white head. Lots of tiny sediment suspended in the glass. Medium carbonation with a lightly syrupy body and lots of lacing. Strong aroma of dank pine and some citrus. Smooth with a decent mouth feel. Taste is mostly citrus peel with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Not as sweet or fruity as I expected but not bad. Light lingering bitterness but not harsh. Fairly enjoyable.

Can. Orange citrus aroma with notes of pineapple, bready malt and light pine resiny bitterness. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet pineapple and bready malt flavors. Finishes dry with orange citrus flavors and acidity with a hint of pine resiny bitterness. A surprisingly low amount of bitterness and a pretty nice IPA.

Loads of pineapple and guava in the aroma along with a grass/pine hop component. Very hazy medium yellow body with a lot of particulate matter swirling around from a fairly robust effervescent carbonation that keeps the small white head going. This isn't the hazy from a "normal" unfiltered IPA which looks cloudy, it's actually a lot of suspended particles (nothing wrong with that, just different). More pineapple and guava in the taste. The hops make themselves known with a spicy, biting bitterness that cuts right through the tropical fruit flavor. Strangely, this bitterness seems to stick to the roof of the mouth instead of the tongue where it usually ends up. Leaves a lasting, spicy bitterness behind with a touch of the fruit flavor and finally a hint of toasted malt and grain. Interesting new IPA from one of the masters of the style.
